When I was back there in seminary school

There was a person there

Who put forth the proposition

That you can petition the Lord with prayer

Petition the lord with prayer

Petition the lord with prayer

You cannot petition the lord with prayer!

 

Can you give me sanctuary

I must find a place to hide

A place for me to hide

 

Can you find me soft asylum

I can't make it anymore

The Man is at the door

 

Peppermint miniskirts chocolate candy

Champion sax and a girl named Sandy

There's only four ways to get unraveled

One is to sleep and the other is travel, da da

One is a bandit up in the hills

One is to love your neighbor 'till

His wife gets home

 

Catacombs, nursery bones, winter women, growing stones

Carrying babies to the river

Streets and shoes, Avenues

Leather riders selling news

The monk bought lunch

Ha ha, he bought a little, Yes, he did, Woo!

This is the best part of the trip, this is the trip, the best part

I really like, what'd he say?

Yeah!

Yeah, right!

Pretty good huh

Huh!

Yeah I'm proud to be a part of this number

 

Successful hills are here to stay

Everything must be this way

Gentle streets where people play

Welcome to the Soft Parade

All our lives we sweat and save

Building for a shallow grave

Must be something else we say

Somehow to defend this place

Everything must be this way

Everything must be this way yeah

 

The Soft Parade has now begun

Listen to the engines hum

People out to have some fun

A cobra on my left

Leopard on my right yeah

The deer woman in a silk dress

Girls with beads around their necks

Kiss the hunter of the green vest

Who has wrestled before

With lions in the night

Out of sight

The lights are getting brighter

The radio is moaning

Calling to the dogs

There are still a few animals

Left out in the yard

But it's getting harder

To describe

Sailors

To the underfed

 

Tropic corridor

Tropic treasure

What got us this far to this mild equator

We need someone or something new

Something else to get us through yeah (c'mon)

Callin' on the dogs

Callin' on the dogs

Oh it's getting harder

Callin' on the dogs

Callin' in the dogs

Callin' all the dogs

Callin' on the gods

You gotta meet me too late baby

Slay a few animals at the crossroads, too late

All in the yard, but it's gettin' harder, by the crossroads

You gotta meet me, oh, we're goin', we're goin great

At the edge of town, tropic corridor, tropic treasure

Havin' a good time, Got to come along, what got us this far

To this mild equator, Outskirts of the city, you and I

We need someone new, Somethin' new, Somethin' else to get us through

Better bring your gun, better bring your gun

Tropic corridor, tropic treasure, we're gonna ride and have some fun

 

When all else fails

We can whip the horse's eyes

And make them sleep

And cry

Wishful crystal

Water covers everything in blue

Coolin' water

Wishful sinful

Our love is beautiful to see

I know where I would like to be

Right back where I came

Wishful sinful wicked blue

Water covers you

Wishful sinful wicked you

Can't escape the blue

Magic rising

Sun is shining deep beneath the sea

But not enough for you and me and sunshine

Love to hear the wind cry

 

Wishful sinful

Our love is beautiful to see

Right back where I came

Poor Otis dead and gone

Left me here to sing his song

Pretty little girl with the red dress on

Poor Otis dead and gone

 

Yeah back down turn around slowly

Try it again, remembering when

It was easy, try it again

Much to easy rememberin' when

All right look at my shoes

Not quite the walkin' blues

Don't fight too much to lose

Can't fight the runnin' blues

 

Well I've got the runnin' blues

Runnin' away, back to L.A.

Got to find the dock of the bay

Maybe find it back in L.A.

Runnin' scared, Runnin' blue

Goin' so fast, What'll I do

 

Well I've got the runnin' blues

Runnin' away, back to L.A.

Got to find the dock of the bay

Maybe find it back in L.A.

All right look at my shoes

Not quite the walkin' blues

Don't fight too much to lose

Can't fight the runnin' blues

All right look at my shoes

Not quite the walkin' blues

Don't fight too much to lose

Can't fight the runnin' blues

Wild child, full of grace

Savior of the, human race

Your cool face

 

Natural child

Terrible child

Not your mother's or your father's child

Your our child screamin' wild

 

An ancient lunatic reigns in the trees of the night

Ha, ha, ha, ha

 

With hunger at her heels

Freedom in her eyes

She dances on her knees

Pirate prince at her side

Starin' into a hollow idols eyes

Wild child, full of grace

Savior of the, human race

Your cool face

Your cool face

Your cool face

 

Do you remember when we were in Africa?

The costume of control

Excitement soon unfolds

Joy, fought vaguely

With your pride

Like polished stone

I see your eyes

Like burning glass

My fingers would explore

The costume of control

Excitement soon unfolds

Coda queen be my bride

Rage in darkness by my side

Seize the summer in your pride

Take the winter in your stride

Let's ride

There will never be another one like you

There will never be another one who can

Do the things you do oh

Will you give another chance

Will you try, little try

Please stop and you remember

We were together

Anyway

All right

And if you have a certain evening

You could lend to me

I'd give it all right back to you

A how it has to be with you

I know your moves and your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

 

Will you stop and think and wonder

Just what you'll see

Out on the train yard

Nursin' penitentiary

It's gone, I cry, out long

Go head brother

 

Did you stop it to consider

How it will feel

Cold grinded grizzly bear jaws hot on your heels

Do you often stop and whisper

It's Saturday's shore

The whole world's a savior

Who could ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever

Ask for more

Do you remember

Will you stop, will you stop

The pain

And there will never be another one like you

There will never be another one who can

Do the things you do oh

Will you give another chance

Will you try little try

Please stop and you remember

We were together

Anyway, all right

How you must of think and wondered

How I must feel

Out on the meadows

While you run the field

I'm alone for you

And I cry

 

The sweat look at it

Optical promise

Heh, heh, heh

You'll be dead and in hell before I'm born

Sure thing

Brides maid

The only solution

Isn't it amazing

Why won't you tell me what she said

Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I
